Easy Does It

easy-does-it-1

Sweater and matching knickerbockers hand-knitted by Molly Dove.

Knitted tops for all occasions. Warm, comfortable sweaters with amusing motifs from The Sweet Shop, and samples from an imaginative collection by a new designer, Molly Dove. Her clothes are obtainable by mail order only; which, as well as keeping the prices down, makes them available to more of you! We also show a pretty little halter-necked top that’s barely there, just in case the sun comes out!

Try a touch of seasonal sorcery – swop clothes with yourself instead of with your sister or friend. Mix tweed with satin, sweaters with fur; play addition and subtraction with your wardrobe to achieve subtle solutions for every climate, every occasion and every mood.
